Welcome to the German YMCA Youth Services!


We are a local charity based in Central London and run an au pair agency for mainly German au pairs in London.


The German YMCA London also gives young people the chance to volunteer in London or elsewhere by sending, receiving and coordinating EVS (European Voluntary Service) volunteers.


On this website you will find detailed information about our organisation, about what we do and offer, contact details and our current programme for young people in London.


You can browse through our several sections by selecting them at the top of this page.


Due to the very nature of our association, much of this website, along with many things we do, will be a mixture of English and German.
